Optimize Production Flows and Operations in Medical Device Manufacturing

Download our whitepaper to learn how to successfully manage all product and process related constraints with Production Scheduling for Life Sciences

With increasing development costs and ever evolving global compliance needs, medical device companies are looking to accelerate and increase agility across their global network of production and quality control laboratories, but success on this front requires more than incremental improvements. Medical device manufacturers need to transform their businesses by using a holistic planning and scheduling approach that spans across the entire product lifecycle spectrum - driving operational excellence and sustainable manufacturing.

In today’s dynamic healthcare marketplace, medical device companies need increased plant agility, throughput and time-to-market against demand while optimizing cash & assets.  Dassault Systèmes’ Production Scheduling industry solution provides our customers with agile digital planning and scheduling to improve on delivery time, optimize resources and reduce working capital.

The Challenge

In any manufacturing industry, production is the driving force to which most other functions react. The changing business environment in which medical device manufacturers are acting has even more challenges than most with the added rigorous regulatory requirements for record keeping, data integrity, sign-offs, quality and stringent traceability. Medical device companies struggle with efficiency and optimization in their development facility and manufacturing processes to deliver more - sometimes even personalized - high quality devices to more people, globally, at lower cost. 

In addition, as devices become more sophisticated, manufacturing and quality testing has become a highly complex and often a globally distributed endeavor. Work load balancing and scheduling at site level is dependent on production and testing across other sites requiring a global solution for the whole manufacturing process.

The Solution

Production Scheduling provides integrated management of product and process-related constraints for detailed production scheduling across multiple resources: machines, operators, tools and metrics in the fast-moving twenty-first century medical device manufacturing environment. Companies can improve production flows and operations by simulating multiple scenarios considering forecasts, resources, and variable production processes. Reduce production material constraints through continuous synchronization of supplier production with your manufacturing operations; and increase production utilization at finite capacity by balancing production lines and resources while managing unplanned events.
